Welcome to the Partners Life Dual

THE RACE THAT’S SAVING AUCKLAND’S ISLAND SANCTUARY, MOTUTAPU

Motutapu & Rangitoto Islands, Auckland, New Zealand
Saturday 25 March 2017

See what the DUAL is all about!

Staged on one of the most prized landscapes in New Zealand - the Hauraki Gulf islands of Motutapu and Rangitoto - the Partners Life DUAL is an incredible event offering trail run and walk, off-road triathlon and mountain bike options. Produced in partnership with Total Sport and Motutapu Restoration Trust, participation in this event contributes directly to the preservation and reforestation of Motutapu. Pretty rad, aye?

The Partners Life DUAL is a once a year opportunity. At no other time throughout the year are people able to participate in an event of this nature, and at no other time are mountain bikes allowed on the islands.

Entry numbers for the 2017 Partners Life DUAL Motutapu-Rangitoto Traverse are limited due to the nature of these two protected islands, so make sure you get your entry in early!

Firstly, got to say that you guys did a top notch job. It was my first time doing a full event and I had the honour to experience The Dual. Thank you so much for organising a spectacular event. I have now well and truly caught the bug. Please pass on my thanks to all those that were involved, their efforts are very much appreciated.

THANK YOU SO MUCH for organising once again a fantastic day on Motutapu/Rangitoto for us all. I am a very slow (but Legend!) old half marathon jogger but enjoy this event enormously - you all put in a heck of a lot of work before during and after...THANK YOU... and see you again next year.

Once again you and your team really delivered a great event Aaron. The Dual was great (the 50k course was good for 35ks then it was a bastard). You guys run the best events we attend. Collecting the bikes was a dream, I turned up, a nice security guard showed me where to park, then the young lads brought the bikes out, it was great.

The event was a blast! Had a great time and will certainly be returning next time! Will be working on all my friends to get them to come next time as well.

SO MANY GOOD REASONS TO DO THE DUAL

THESE ARE JUST SOME OF THEM. WE SERIOUSLY CAN’T COUNT THEM ALL.

Good for you

With event options for every ability level it’s fun for the whole family!

Duel at the DUAL! Motivate yourself and your team.

Whether you choose to race hard or cruise, you’re all the fitter for it.

GOOD FOR THE WORLD YOU LIVE IN

Every entry equals 4 new trees on Motutapu. That's about 8,000 total!

Save the kiwi! Motutapu is a crucial predator-free habitat for kiwi.
